Rail loop document leak criticised

Rail loop document leak criticised

There's criticism over the leaking of a report on Auckland's future transport options.

A draft document by transport engineers Sinclair Knight Merz has backed the idea of an underground rail loop, and paints a grim picture of what the city would be like without it.

Councillor George Wood doesn't agree the rail tunnel is the best option, and he says the Council should have been given the report first.

"Disappointed that it's come out in the media in the way it has as a draft document.

"I don't think that the kind of findings this document has come up with really are correct, and I want to see more background information."
